10×10 0.1.1

10by10 10×10 is a SWEET way to stay current on the news. Who wants to read the news when you can see it in picture form! 10×10 is based off the website tenbyten.org. Here is a little snippet from the website about how 10×10 works and info about how it works on your iPhone (but, you really need to check out the website and read all the info there…they explain it a lot more!)

“Every hour, 10×10 scans the RSS feeds of several leading international news sources, and performs an elaborate process of weighted linguistic analysis on the text contained in their top news stories. After this process, conclusions are automatically drawn about the hour’s most important words. The top 100 words are chosen, along with 100 corresponding images, culled from the source news stories. At the end of each day, month, and year, 10×10 looks back through its archives to conclude the top 100 words for the given time period. In this way, a constantly evolving record of our world is formed, based on prominent world events, without any human input.”

So, what you end up with is a 10×10 block of 100 images each with it’s own word in the caption (the image and the word are put together randomly without any human intervention). When you open the app 10×10 on your iPhone you will get a landscape view of 100 little images. You can then tap on one to make the image bigger and get the word caption. The website itself is a little more interactive because when you hover over a picture you also see the headlines from which the word and image were chosen. I have noticed that a lot of the images show up more than once…but, the words are different. There are always 100 different words…not always 100 different images. There is also a little “i” in the lower right corner of the app, that when selected, will give you more info. I think this app is interesting! Let me know what you think. 10×10 is available through the ModMyiFone.com source. Below are the screenshots.

Note: I am running this on 1.1.1 and it has been tested on 1.1.3 and is said to work fine.

  1. Brook it is possible that u give me a email adress to ask u some questions about iphone i think u have a lot of knoleged about that…

  2. I get main script execution failed. Does it not work with 1.1.3???

  3. @PR JR
    Clean up your Queue and then try it again to install !

  4. Hi, Thanks for the daily updates. I have 3 iphones and I keep them up to date by visiting your site for the latest news and programs to try. kudos!

  5. Is it possible to add own RSS feeds?

  6. Is this app working on the iphone ? I cannot read the word list nor the headline nor the news. Only a 10×10 grid of pictures is not very useful on the iphone. The app works great on the computer if you go to http://www.tenbyten.org/10×10.html

    There you can click the image, then the word list then the headlines then the actual news behind the picture.

    How do I get it to work like that on the iphone ?

    • The iPhone version is a little limited…as stated above…you are not able to see the news articles that go with the word and, the word shows up as a caption instead of over on the side.

  7. so it only shows pictures?.. whats the point.. if it would actually take you to the news story by clicking on the picture then it would be useful.. no point to this app

  8. does it work with 1.1.4? thanks
